PORT CANAVERAL – Two women and a dog were rescued from a vehicle that drove into a retention pond on Christmas Eve near Port Canaveral, fire officials said.

The water rescues took place around 11:20 a.m. in a triangle-shaped retention pond at the intersection of State Road 528 and George King Boulevard. Canaveral Fire Captain Phillip Butler said the eastbound vehicle was approaching Port Canaveral and the driver exited the SR 528 on George King Boulevard.

“There was possibly a medical emergency in the vehicle, and the vehicle ended up in the retention basin on the southwest side of George King,” said Butler.

Deputies from the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office rescued the women and the dog from the vehicle, Butler said. A woman was taken to hospital for a medical evaluation.

Messages requesting further information were left with Tod Goodyear, the sheriff’s spokesman, on Saturday.
